    Summary

    Day breaks over Greenhithe as surely as it does over all of England. Months from now, they’ll grow tired of never ending sunlight, he expects, only to miss it terribly some months later still, shrouded in darkness for weeks on end. He knows what to expect, but he doubts many aboard do.

    a.k.a. The Franklin Expedition with slightly less hubris and a little more luck.

    Summary

    The dreams had always been with him.

    Since he was a child, Thomas would wake at night, images from a time long past dancing in front of his vision. Some were beautiful, peaceful even. His favorites were the ones with another younger boy; they played in a garden, or climbed trees together. There is a woman too, sometimes; darning socks by candlelight, or singing softly under her breath as she tended to supper. She would take Tom to what looked like a farmers market, basket swinging on her arm. Those dreams left him feeling warm and content upon waking.

    Then, there were the other dreams.

    Summary

    When he wakes back on the ship, it is at first not particularly disorienting. He had, after all, spent almost four years living on board Terror. To come to consciousness slowly, helped along toward wakefulness by the familiar creaking of the ice and the incessant sound of the wind outside…it’s familiar, soothing almost. It takes Thomas Jopson a few moments to remember that this was not at all where he’d fallen asleep.
